nbc-universal television captions paid for by nbc-universal television from nbc news, this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> it's nesday, wednesday, everybody. congratulations. >> you made it. >> october 26th. we're delighted you're here with us today. >> speaking of halloween, how about -- wait. because we were just talking about halloween stuff. >> you just ate a reese's peanut butter cup. >> i'm getting in the halloween spirit. we were talking about that congressman who thinks it would be a great idea to have halloween always on a saturday.
2:06 am
>> i think that's a great idea. >> that is a genius idea. >> much better for families that can get home from work. they have to take their time getting ready for it. >> from your home state of connecticut, by the way. >> really? >> it would help out. monday night trick-or-treating? >> i know. >> that's not great. anyway. i thought i'd bring that up. >> we have a couple of things to clear up for all of you out there who've been watching us and following us on facebook. >> we do. you had a couple questions. one was about your lipstick, lip gloss, and your fingernails. everyone's interested in your nails. >> i don't know why. at least i had them done recently, thank goodness. the lipstick is mac, m-a-c and it's called myth. the gloss on top is called bite. the nails are -- they were originally chanel. the khaki rose. they only made that for fashion week a year ago. so now a company -- there's a
2:07 am
company that will take something that's discontinued and make it for you. it's called giella, they custom blend things. >> i hate when they discontinue things. >> the dress you had on yesterday caused quite the stir. >> that's a kay unger dress. we love her stuff. this is a tip we love. i'm sorry. >> hoda brought it up yesterday. she's still on a roll. >> my -- i am between sizes. and i'm not going to say what sizes. in my shoes. >> large. >> what did you say? >> large. >> okay. so i always opt for the bigger ones because the smaller ones -- >> hurt your feet. >> -- hurt your feet. then you run the risk of your heel, like this one, sliding down. what do you do? some people buy those little instep thingies that aren't great. here's a cheap and easy alternative and we are going to test it out to make sure it works. take a maxi pad. a thin one.
2:08 am
that's a big one. wow. >> oh. >> that is -- >> oh, my gosh. still not big enough for your shoe, though, hoda. >> all right. that is way too big. >> fits in there nicely. >> put it in there. and then -- >> it's the perfect fit. >> i've had it with you. then you put it on. oh, my gosh. look. this one's in. this one's coming out. this one has it in. look. so just buy your share of always ultra thin or something like it. anyway, they work. >> did you see this dust storm wedding? if you haven't seen it, it took place in arizona. they were saying their vows. out of nowhere came this dust storm.
2:09 am
>> look at them. look how they're going through the entire ceremony. someone comes in with an umbrella. that doesn't really work that well. it blows eventually inside out. here's the funny thing about the two of them. they went through all the steps. >> look. there's about four people left at the wedding. that's so funny. >> they went through their vows. the whole deal. what would you have done if that was happening in the middle of your wedding? >> i don't know. i guess if i thought it would be dangerous i probably would have gone running. but -- >> look at her. >> i think i would have left. >> here's the funny thing. it started off crystal clear. they saw it coming. >> a metaphor for life. you know what i'm saying, hoda woman? >> it comes out of nowhere and gets you. and she -- >> you know what? they've got a sense of humor about it. >> look at the woman on the left. >> i know what you would have done. >> i would have said, no, we'll do the vows inside.
2:10 am
i would have made a run for it. >> do you think you'll ever get married again? >> this is awkward. >> i didn't say soon. i just mean -- >> i don't know. i don't know about that question. hence the wine on our set. i honestly don't know. i don't know. because i do think i'm better with someone. but i also, you know, like independence, too. so i like the blend. >> there's a little bit of fear and trepidation when you have had a marriage that didn't work out. >> yeah, yeah. and you can't -- the funny thing, i think a lot of women who were divorced do this. they take the sins of their other husband and -- >> apply them. >> -- there, he's doing that now. look at that. sometimes you don't realize you're doing it. >> that's you. >> that's nothing i would do because jay's perfect. >> pretty darn close to it. he is a sweetheart. >> he's the real, real deal. >> stay tuned. >> all right. what's going on with -- what?
2:11 am
>> stay tuned. >> what's going on with kris humphries. >> i actually -- we heard that kris humphries wanted out of filming the "keeping up with the kardashians." >> coming from "life & style." >> says he's tired of the cameras. not going to do the next season. only paid -- only in quotes. $20,000 per episode. here's the thing. i called kris jenner. 6:00 in the morning in los angeles. already worked out and on her way to the plastic surgeon. actually, she was. you got to love the woman. she has her priorities. anyway, she says she doesn't know what he's paid because she's not his manager. she said, i don't know that he's -- that he doesn't want to do the show. she says, i haven't seen him hardly at all since the wedding because the minute they got married, they went on the honeymoon. then they came to new york to film the "kourtney and kim take new york" show. i think it's more he's cranky right now because of the lockout
2:12 am
with the nba. she said, yes, he'd rather be playing basketball. >> having his own thing. i think the problem is when you don't have your own gig and suddenly you're now part of the -- >> he knew what he was getting into. he married kim -- started dating her when she was already a superstar. >> sure. it is nice when you do have -- even if you're married to a superstar, as long as you have something that's only yours. >> i think you give up a lot. going to be talking a little bit with glenn beck, an interview i did yesterday. there is a huge price to fame. >> mm-hmm. >> you don't know it when you're seeking it. it's almost like your health and your privacy are the two things you take for granted until you lose them both. >> i thought it was interest ing. one of glenn beck's quotes you showed in the earlier hour, how he wouldn't want to be his own wife or children. that was telling. >> because of the difficulties. that's coming up on our show today. >> all right. >> glenn beck is not one of these, nor frank gifford, nor jay, a couple people around here
2:13 am
probably are. more men are getting botox. it's called boytox. never in a million years would frank gifford do it. >> ever. they're doing it in that line right in the middle. not the eye lines. i think men look handsome with wrinkles. >> life is not fair. >> the plastic surgeons say apparently it's a big boom, that more men are getting the botox. >> you haven't done it? >> no. >> you're not going to do it? >> i don't think so. no. i don't think so. you haven't done it. >> i've been doing it since i turned 40. are you kidding me? of course i do it. anybody who has no creases and says they don't. lying. >> let's say you're in line at a department store. you've been waiting in line to pay for your stuff and a woman walks up and says, hold on, i just have a question. i'm going to cut in front of you. excuse me. then proceeds to ask a lengthy question. i was looking for this. it's not in this aisle. blah, blah, blah. what do you do? do you think that's proper etiquette? if you only have a question,
2:14 am
you're not buying anything, is it okay to cut in front in line to ask your question and go on your way. >> i think it's anything in life. it's how you do it. if you literally need to say excuse me, where's the pay phone. you say it to the person you're -- you're cutting. say would you mind if i ask a question first? instead of going right in front of them going, i'm sorry. it's tone. it's always tone. >> they say if it's a yes/no question it's okay to step in front. if it's more involved like, hey, i had a return. someone said i should bring it here. do you have any, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. that's what basically the social q is calling. i don't like when i'm waiting in line and the clerk -- her phone rings and she says, can you hold on a second? hello. yes. uh-huh. they start proceeding to have a long conversation with the person on the telephone. sometimes you show up at any of the stores, best buy, whatever, because you wanted to be in person to see them to talk. i could have called in. i didn't. i came.
2:15 am
>> you could call in in line. >> it's me. i'm waiting right in front of you. >> we can't reveal our halloween costumes. don't try to get it out of us. >> are you excited about them? >> yes. it's going to be fun. >> it's a group ensemble. okay? here's the funny thing. if you want to see justin bieber in concert on the plaza, he's coming here. november 23rd. when you come out on the plaza, you enter our halloween costume contest. and you may be one of the people who gets to come back again and see justin bieber later on, november 23rd. >> five pairs of v.i.p. passes. >> come on. he'll be here for thanksgiving, for the macy's day parade. that's going to be pretty cool. people are creative with their costumes they come up with. >> it's fun. we also have another contest going on, don't we, miss sara? >> our harry potter.
